Published on 2012-08-21. Author : SpecialChem

LOS ANGELES -- Dunn-Edwards has introduced two new finishes to its popular Acri-Hues line. The new offerings include Eggshell and Semi-Gloss finishes, joining the existing Acri-Hues Exterior Flat Paint that painting professionals and specifiers have come to depend on and trust for their projects. With the addition of the Eggshell and Semi-Gloss finishes, Dunn-Edwards now offers a complete exterior line that meets the demands and needs of specifiers and painting professionals.

Acri-Hues Exterior Flat is formulated using a high quality 100 percent acrylic resin, and will continue to be available in all Perfect Palette colors. "Acri-Hues Exterior Flat was introduced six years ago and has become hugely popular," said Dave Heiligenthal, Product Manager. "It is an extremely dependable paint that provides excellent fade and grain crack resistance and is ideal for use on residential and commercial projects," added Heiligenthal.

The two new additions to the Acri-Hues line, exterior Eggshell and Semi-Gloss, are ultra-low VOC, acrylic paints that provide dependable performance when used on properly prepared exterior wood, masonry, stucco, concrete and metal surfaces. "The new Acri-Hues Eggshell and Semi-Gloss paints perform as well as some competitive 100 percent acrylic paints," he said. "Our competitive benchmark testing reveals that these two new products show superior resistance to dirt pick-up as well as improved application performance."

Like all other Dunn-Edwards products, Acri-Hues Exterior Paint is eco-friendly, ethylene glycol (EG)-free and produced in the world's only LEED® Gold-certified paint manufacturing plant. Acri-Hues Exterior Paint is ultra-low VOC at 50 grams per liter, and has very low odor both during and after application. Dunn-Edwards paint is tinted with zero VOC colorants.
